Lianne, honestly they are all great quality...and since it's leather it gets only
softer & softer with time. I have the Classic, I like it. It's just that for Bella
who has super thin skin with little hair, I prefer the gentler/softer collections.
For Chanel, who has a nice long coat, the Classic & Special buddy belts work
great! Never had an issue. I think Max will be ok too.

Yeah Max is bigger than Bella, he's about 4 pounds. I think it was Zorana who posted some pics a while back of the BB's she has and the luxury one looked so lovely and soft, I'm sure she had it in black or a dark grey colour which would have been perfect. Unfortunately I don't think the purple python or the gold one off the website are very Max! Like you say though with him having a longer coat like Chanel it would probably add some extra protection. Think he'll have to wait to January now before I can afford one though!

Thanks for all the help LS. Do you know how much the tax would be? I've wanted one for aaaaages but I didn't want to buy one and then have him grow out of it. I've forgotten what Mylo's measurements are. I don't suppose you remember Lianne? I'm pretty sure he was like a half an inch bigger than Max.

The lady that works at wetnose boutique is so very helpful and nice. you could send her a message with what size you need or message her the measurements, and ask her which ones she has that are the softest leather that are a boy color. that's what i did. some of the fancy ones are just as soft as the luxury and she will let you know.

They have a new color called "Knight". I think it's a luxury, as the price is higher than special. I have the special and to me its very soft.

So, I was wondering whether it's better to get one from a UK stockist or one that does international shipping? Would I pay extra tax? Also, Zorana - what size did you say I needed? Was it a 3?

Thanks
Hi beautiful! When you get a chance, measure Mylo's chest for me (the biggest part of it). Just for reference, when my doggies are naked, these are their sizes and chest measurements:
Note that they have 5 holes for adjustment.
Leo size 2, middle hole, 11" chest, 4lbs
Lola size 3, middle hole or one hole smaller, 12.5" chest, 4.75lbs
Mojo size 3.5, 15" chest (middle hole) and 8lbs

Does that help? I'm guessing Mylo will be a 3 from what I remember before but I'm not sure if he has grown much?

Not sure if you still need them but here's the ones you gave for his secret santa:

Mylo's measurements are
Neck: 8.5"
Chest: 13.5"
Length: 13" neck to base of tail.
